Participation and Writing Requirements

The curriculum of each program is designed to provide students with a variety of learning activities:

All students are expected to participate and contribute to each course.


Papers for every course are expected to reflect college-level writing ability. They are assessed for content, organization, and writing skills. All papers are to be proofread prior to submission.

Time Commitment

You must be online sufficiently throughout each week to participate in threaded discussions and to complete all assignments by their designated deadlines. However, there is no prescribed amount of time or designated time that you will be required to be online because assignments and their deadlines will vary throughout each course.
